Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-5872) geronimo-servlet_3.0_spec-1.0.jar incorrectly applies semantic versioning to servlet packages
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2011 16:20:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-5872?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13009193#comment-13009193
] 

David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-5872:
----------------------------------------

Semantically, shouldn't servlet spec package versioning be at something like 1.8?
What version do you think we should export?
What do we do about the users of the servlet api that expect the 3.0 api classes to be exported
at 3.0?
Is there any agreement among anyone what the osgi package version should be for javaee spec
apis?  Is it documented anywhere?

> The gernomio-servlet_3.0_spec-1.0.jar incorrectly exports the javax.servlet packages
as 2.6 and 3.0. The problem with this is if the Servlet spec were to make a semantically breaking
API change the correct next semantic step for the javax.servlet packages would be 3.0. This
means there is no way for an importer importing at [3.0,4.0) to know whether they will match
the version that is the same as 2.6, or the version that is breaking from 3.0 resulting in
deployment and runtime problems.
